For the 4" you could weld the tip on. The 5" I dont think it would work the well. Unless you get a adapter that goes down to 4" from 5" but I think that would look kind of funny.

I'm sure you already thought of this, but you could always get a DPF/DOC delete pipe that necks down to fit into the factory muffler/tail pipe section? This may not be a bad idea just to save your factory tail section if you ever decide to return to stock it will be easy. Once you cut the tip off it will make things more difficult to switch back to stock.

I have no emissions checking here in Bayou country. My tip is smashed as it is but i'm trying to get my hands on another. I want the truck to look as stock as possible.

You could do it, but it would take some fabbing. The easier route would be to just get a DPF/Cat delete setup and leave the entire DPF back portion alone.

It would sound lie the straight piped kits do.

A full 4" would flow better therefore lowering EGTs.
